Yes they are g3chevy. Not re-pops, but actually from the 70's. These are shots of them showing how you can get 12" rotors on the front, and 11 1/2" discs under a 15" wheel.

Excellent wheel choice! Those AR Classic 200S's with Coopers definitely changes your Malibu's character. Really gives it a bold tough looking stance while maintaining classiness!

Limey I sandblasted the center of them and then put a matt clear on the spokes. I then polished the outer portion.

Thanks LSANTI76. I can't believe how much it changed the looks of it. I get way more comments and thumbs up now too.

StaggerLee thanks. And yes they called them both of those.

Sweet! Looks good. I like that they are from the '70s and you were able to find them.

Very nice, a big improvement! Great work on the wheel restoration. What media did you use to blast the wheels?

76Malibu I used silca sand and lightly dusted them until they were clean. Of course I used duct tape to tape off all the polished areas. Then I went back and taped them off again before spraying the spokes with matte clear.
